Big Dance Theater Presents a Work-in-Progress
- Building 110: LMCC’s Arts Center at Governors Island
- Dates & Times
- Saturday, August 18, 2012, 3–5PM
Moving from large scale performance frames, to the intimacy of the crypt-like basement of the Chocolate Factory, Big Dance Theater teams up with playwright Sibyl Kempson (Crime or Emergency) to install their signature blend of performance, text, and visual design for an audience of just 30 per show. Kempson’s Ich, Kürbisgeist is set in a harsh quasi-medieval landscape facing destruction, populated by a community speaking a rigorous, specific, and completely invented language. Every word is semi-recognizable: an amalgam of English, Swedish, German-- and Sid Ceasar. The language is as tough and unforgiving as the windswept, uncultivated landscape.
Building 110: LMCC’s Arts Center at Governors Island is located steps from the main ferry dock. As you disembark walk up the small hill and to the right. Building 110 is the first building on the right. Enter through the center door.
Ferries to Governors Island are free and depart regularly from the Battery Maritime Building in Manhattan and Pier 6 in Brooklyn. Visit the Governors Island website for more information about visiting.
